Reply Subj: Marc Guggenheim uses homophobia to defend "One More Day"
Posted: Sun Sep 21, 2008 at 11:50:01 pm EDT

But if you're going to be loud and outspoken to creators who had nothing to do with the story for over a year...

don't be surprised when they A) stop taking you seriously and B) start answering with quips instead of making genuine arguments like they did directly following OMD.

And there is a grain of sense there. If you perceive a civil union as marriage, then yes, by living together for 5+ years, Peter and MJ were still married in a legal sense.

The only way anyone loses anything is if you view marriage as something that has to do with a ceremony, perhaps in a church. That didn't happen anymore. The former did.

> Marc Guggenheim's response to fans who are still upset over "One More Day:"
> "Part of the problem with the controversy behind One More Day is the understanding of what was retconned overstates the extent of what was done. Everything that happened in the last twenty plus years of comic book history happened! The only difference is that Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson weren't married. They still dated. They still lived together. They still love each other. They just weren't married. Judging from the letters and death threats we received, I think some people were confused. It all still happened. Here's my attitude, if anyone is upset about the marriage going away, then they must all be pro gay marriage. Because if you're pro gay marriage, you understand the distinction between a marriage and a civil union -- that a civil union is not equal to a marriage. We downgraded Mary Jane and Peter to a civil union. If that bothers you, then you're pro gay marriage."
> Dear Marc Guggeinheim,
> I'm against "One More Day." And, even though I'm a heterosexual man, I also support the right of homosexuals to marry.
> You, on the other hand, are an inexcusable idiot.
> Please shut your hole.
> Thank you.
